Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

Quick Avocado and Mango Salad

I put this together in just a few minutes. I always prefer salads like this over ones that have lettuce as the base. I'm not a huge fan of lettuce salads unless they're smothered in creamy dressing, and that kind of defeats the purpose of eating salad.

You could add black beans to this, too.
